Rev. Harbison


Faith is not something static.  It is flexible, stretching and bending and molding as our lives continue on the journey that God places us on.  It doesn't mean that it is weak or fragile. It just means that it grows.  It leaves room for doubt, but in the end gives us the strength and hope to live our lives.

Faith changes. I sure hope it does anyway. As we meet more people have more experiences and god's holy spirit works through these people and experiences, our eyes should be opened and we should see things anew.

I always knew what I believed. I knew what was right and what was wrong and no one could tell me any different. Fortunately, I was wrong. The Holy Spirit could tell me different. God working through my education, the people I met, and the fullness of God's creation opened my eyes to new ways of seeing things. Faith wasn't static and neither is the way I see the world now. Join me this Sunday as I address one of the issues facing our denomination today and maybe give us all new eyes to see where God is leading our understanding of faith.

Volunteer at the Star of Hope
Sunday, May 17 


On the third Sunday of every month our volunteers go to the Star of Hope Transitional Living Center to assist with lunch for the residents. TLC serves up to 66 families and 45 single women, preparing them to become independent and re-enter the mainstream of society.  Pick up a copy of the Star of Hope Guidelines for Service and learn how to register as a first time volunteer and then sign up in the narthex for the next opportunity to help out at Star of Hope.  In the meantime check out today's email from Star of Hope, Celebrating Volunteers.



Piano Given to St. Luke's


Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church has given us a wonderful Baldwin Baby Grand Piano. They recently purchased a newer piano and wanted to donate the existing piano to another church. Their offer was mentioned in the Presbytery of New Covenant Tuesday Connect newsletter and we were the lucky recipients!  The piano was delivered Tuesday and now lives in our choir loft.  We appreciate this gift to our church and are thankful for the generosity of Memorial Drive PC. 

Jayne's Garden 


The wonderful flowers that greet us as we enter our church have been graciously and lovingly tended by our own Jayne Manry. For several years Jayne has cultivated this lovely "garden" as a personal gift to our church family. Thank you, Jayne, for giving us such a beautiful and welcoming gift.

A Closing Prayer    

O God, walk with us
that we might always have perspective about what is truly important in life.
Give us purpose and the assurance that we are not alone
as we make our decisions and face difficult times and situations.
Be the sure road beneath our feet and our companion along the way.  Amen.
